On the contrary, I have seen other Archive users change their movie's cover file days after the video was initially uploaded. Please look into this further.

This video was uploaded initially with it's video thumbnail, but as of yesterday, it's listing in the library changed to a picture with the video title in it, just as all of the other videos in this user's library have been done.

oh, ok. you're talking about the tile image that appears in search results. yes, assigning "Item Image" to an image file uploaded to the item should do that. the thumb on the player itself will not change though.
